Last week, I took Kylie to Memorial City Mall not for a shopping spree but a carousel ride. For only $1, Mommy & Kylie giggled all the way around. This is a perfect treat that everyone can afford. Kids love the lights and colors. Parents like the ease and low cost. It's also a good lunch outing during a Houston Spring Break.

Afterward, we walked through the mall to the Milky Way Play Castle that's free entertainment. While I wish there was more for toddlers to do, Kylie didn't seem to notice that she was the smallest child crawling through the "big kids'" castle. She even crawled the plank. When the weather is unpleasant, be sure to tackle this adventure. My only concern was that everyone has to take off their shoes inside the castle & my toe nails were horrible. (Am I even allowed to share that? Too much information. Sorry.) Okay, really, this is good fun for young kids. The mall needs to update the flooring because there are a lot of spots that are just patched with tape but the kids don't mind at all.

For more fun things to do for Spring Break with your kids, check out my guidebook 100+ Activities for Houston Kids in local book stores now or online at www.TellYourTale.com/Kids.

Until the next nap time...
